I bought this originally as more a joke for my fiance (we had bought the cat instruction manual for our friends a few weeks before). But after reading through it, actually found it rather informative. It's funny, but in a dry humor sort of way. Since we're both engineers, we appreciate the straightforward advice, lack of superflous flowerly language, and heavy use of diagrams. Probably not for everyone, but we liked it!

I love these books, but I usually get them for my now husband because he is of the computer engineer mind and this format suits him well. I like this book because it has alot of good ideas in it, alot of good conversation starters and how to deal with situations involving the in-laws, which is an issue with us personally. However, my hope is that alot of the information presented in this book is common sense...but common sense isn't so common, so maybe I'm expecting too much. :)

Gave it as part of a shower gift. Some good advice and something to think about. The newlyweds to be enjoyed receiving it. It adds to the excitement of the anticipation of the big day and is practical as well!

I have ordered pretty much all of these owners instruction manual books, including the bride, dog, cat, groom and baby books. All of the them have been gifts for others, and they all have enjoyed them. This one was ordered for my brother and his wife for a gift before the wedding, they enjoyed it. All of the books are absolutely hilarious and are a great gift for someone who has a humor side. Not only do they actually give good advice, and walk you through stages on the topic, they give it to you in a legit understanding way but with a comedian manor. Even if you get the book for someone who isn't much of a reader, the pictures and demonstration are pretty humorous. Would definitely recommend for anyone with has a funny side, and need a simple add on to make them laugh about things they are expecting or having in life.

This book is a cool, quirky little novelty with what looks like some good information.
I haven't really gone through it as it's a gift for my wife to be, but from what I can tell, the humor is pretty well done.
It was smaller than I expected, but that's probably because I didn't pay attention to the size when I ordered it - not a problem at all.
It's a neat little, surprisingly dense little book and I'm happy with the purchase.

This book series is really fun. They break down the different aspects into manageable, fun ideas. I wouldn't say it is a thorough book, but it is still informative and interesting to read. I learned some things about living with my husband!

It's quite funny, but at the same time, I found a number of useful information in the book. I suggest both spouses to read the book at the same time.

I purchased this as a gift because The Baby Owner's Manual by the same publisher is utterly HILARIOUS and is always a hit as a baby shower gift, so I hoped this book would live up to my same expectations. Unfortunately I wasn't as thrilled with this book. It's not bad, it's just not as great as I expected compared to the baby book, and the advice contained in it is all kind of obvious stuff. I do acknowledge that it's supposed to be humorous and not a really solid advice book (although the baby book does contain some terrific tips), but it just didn't really meet my expectations. *shrug* It's more of a silly gift; if you give it to someone, you'll probably want to give it alongside a "real" gift, which is what I'll likely do.
